IMMIGRATION

There are multiple reasons for someone needing to relocate and or remain living in the UK and will need clear immigration advice, help with building a case to support their application or appeal and as such will need both emotional and psychological support throughout this exhaustive, complex and confusing process.

When supporting an individual with an immigration issue, it is vital that the client receives legal advice. It is a criminal offence under the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 for anyone to give immigration advice or services in the UK unless they are regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (the OISC), a regulated solicitor, barrister or legal executive (or European equivalent) or exempted by Ministerial Order.

When my client has received legal advice from a reputable and suitably qualified solicitor, I then either review a case which already exists and has been rejected to ascertain what can be done to revoke the decision, or I gather evidence, and build a case to submit through immigration surrounding the details of that individuals situation.

How can I help you?

The services that I offer through ROYLES LTD, helps individuals hold onto ‘what matters’ and this can be done through the services of ‘Investigation, Case-building & Emotional Support’.

Why am I in a position to help?

1) I am a former Police officer, who was trained to investigate, gather evidence and build comprehensive cases.

2) I am a qualified psychotherapist, which enables me to understand, deal with and
manage my clients psychological and emotional needs throughout this process, which is
a unique service that I offer.

3) I am a national and international expert on controlling behaviour and domestic violence
and as a consequence am not phased by bullies, or organisations that are proving
difficult or challenging to deal with.

So what are the complexities of immigration?

My clients often seek my services after having been let down by a system, organisation, profession and/or a case representative, if not a combination all four. This exacerbates my clients situation and is usually the point at which I become involved with the case. The process of the immigration application, and equally the appeal process, is complex. Quite often though, their case is ‘riddled’ with mistakes and inaccuracies. What myself and Royles Ltd do is look to build the case with ‘robust’ evidence that plugs that gap, achieving a greater chance of a level playing field and an opportunity for a fairer outcome.

Which is where ROYLES comes in…

I meet with my client to assess what they need, what has happened to bring them to me, what has gone wrong, how have the been failed by professionals, services, systems and organisations and why they need me and my particular bespoke service, with individual particular skill set of analysing the details, finding gaps in practice and bringing together all relevant information.

After an initial face to face meeting, I then review the information and documents available to me, and establish a plan of action to move forward. I am available via email, text and phone to discuss the impact that this process is having on my clients mental health, as this is a highly significant life event and one that should be treated with sensitivity and professionalism. I have experienced some clients reduced to coping with the injustice and the uncertainty of their situation, causing them to feel suicidal. This difficulties with the ‘immigration process’ are highlighted by the ‘WindRush’ case study.

My extensive professional training has equipped me to deal with complex cases and so I would encourage you to get in contact with me if you need help preparing your case, having your case reviewed, or need an issue, dispute or grievance of any kind investigated.
